Burned (Pretty Little Liars #12) by Sara Shepard

Burned (Pretty Little Liars, #12)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
It's spring break, and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a cruise vacation. They want nothing more than to sail into the tropical sunset and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week. But where Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna go, A goes, too. From scuba diving to tanning on the upper deck, A is there, soaking up all their new secrets.

Emily is smooching a stowaway. Aria's treasure-hunting partner is a little too interested in her booty. Spencer's going overboard trying to land a new boy. And a blast--or rather, a crash--from Hanna's past could mean rough waters ahead for everyone.

The liars better tighten their life jackets. A perfect storm is brewing, and if they aren't careful, A will bury them at sea. . . .

Burned by Sara Shepard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Burned (Pretty Little Liars, #12)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Hanna accidentally almost kills someone in a car accident, the girls are off on a cruise, and it seems A. is going with them.
Who is A. though? Will we ever find out?

This was another okay story for me, and again the Ali storyline drags on.

The beginning of this book was interesting at least with the car crash, and I was hoping that maybe we were going to get more of this storyline instead of the Ali/A. stuff, but no, A. was still tormenting them, and the coincidences started to get more and more unbelievable.
While we had Tabitha’s mother in the last book, we got Tabitha’s boyfriend in this instalment, and we also got the cousin of the girl that got injured in the car accident with Hanna. Two big coincidences, which were then followed up by a third that involved an item of jewellery and its mysterious appearance.
The girls once again made some poor decisions in this book, and this time A. resorted to sending rhyming text messages, one of which didn’t rhyme…. Anyway, the texts weren’t all that exciting, and again the girls guessed at more and more ridiculous possibilities as to who A. was. I actually want to finish this series now just so I can put this lot to bed once and for all, because Ali and co seem to have multiple lives!
The ending was okay, and we were left with the same old questions – who is A? Is Ali really dead?
Overall; okay story with a change of scenery, but the same old storyline really.
6.5 out of 10.
